HOW DO WE ACT?
The NGO Acting for Life has designed and implemented an original and rigorous operating mode, based on a global partnership approach for the development of territorial economic and social development projects. It translates into 5 main steps:
1.TERRITORIAL DIAGNOSIS AND IDENTIFICATION OF NEEDS
on a sector or a sector of activity, on the level of education and professional training or on the access of populations to public services.
2. DIAGNOSIS AND IDENTIFICATION OF LOCAL PARTNERS
to allow the choice of relevant local partners involved at each stage of the preparation of the co-constructed project.
3. CONSTRUCTION OF INNOVATIVE PILOT PROJECTS
to assess the relevance of the action, its viability and the capacity of the actors to mobilize locally and potentially develop programs on a larger scale.
4. ACCOMPANIMENT TOWARDS EMPOWERMENT
local partners with technical, administrative and financial support through regular field missions.
5. INDEPENDENT EVALUATION OF PROJECTS AND CAPITALIZATION
to disseminate field experiences for the benefit of all international development actors.
